Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You’re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it—details of personal disputes are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it’s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users’ profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses – Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it’s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who’s selling it, it doesn’t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions – Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services – Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products – While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements – Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be “bumped” excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues – Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators’ discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the “alert” button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your “Ignore” list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you’d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user’s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

    I'll allow the baby-eating silliness, but y'all can't just ramble on about everything under the sun out here. If you wanna talk music, you need to find a music forum. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

      That is something I never thought I would hear.

      Thats like your parents coming into your room and saying:

      "Now Billy, you put them school books away. Here is a prostitute, a pound of chibba, and a heroin kit. Do you have any condoms?"

      "Yes mom"

      "Well give them here, my son is too good for protected sex. And when your done in here, I want you to go out and beat up some old people. When you are done with that then come home, I should be done broiling your baby brother so we can eat."

      Ahhh, memories.

      • But Erin it's all part of our planned musical freestyle COTH-BB quadrille to the songs of every DQs favourite band: NOFX [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img]

        I admit it will be tricky lugging those Walmart horses around an arena to such fast music but the threats of becoming quizine should encourage the child labor to pull harder donchathink??


        • Some of us are hungry.


          • I'd much rather talk about Krispy Kremes. I've heard so much about them and never had one!!!!!!!!


            • You've never had a Krispy Kreme??? You must go visit Velvet. Not far from her (which, admittedly, is in a galaxy far, far away) there is a recently opened KK store that is very popular. I hear she's a regular...

              I can get Krispy Kremes at the bagel place two doors down from my work. They go quite well with Dom... And with fried babies smothered in cinnamon and sugar.


              • A NOFX quadrille? Now that would be interesting! Sign me up! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

                  To understand Krispy Kreme, just imagine the lightest, fluffiest baby you have ever had. now make it lighter and fluffier with a sugar glaze.

                  • I thought this thread had died! Well, here's my recipe for Grilled Teryaki Baby:

                    1 bottle teryaki sauce
                    1 T minced garlic
                    black pepper, dried parsley, ground ginger, red pepper, onion powder--add to taste
                    dash lemon juice

                    De-bone baby. Marinade for 1-4 hours, depending on thickness of baby (marinade penetrates at a rate of 1/4 inch per hour.) Grill over grey-ashed coals for approximately 30 minutes, turning once.

                    For best results, line grill with aluminum foil. This prevents flareups from dripping baby oil. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                      • Much like chicken, you can only get food poisoning from babies if they aren't cooked to a core temperature of 165 degrees. So take precautions to not mix raw and cooked baby and clean your cutting board throughly

                        Nothing makes a person more productive than the last minute

                          Ahh...but you are forgetting the Suckling Sushi!
                          Dipped liberally in Wasabi, it's a real kick!

                          And never mind about Krispy Kremes! You haven't truly had the ultimate experience in decadence until you've tried the French Dessert Bebe, [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img] creme-filled...and delicately swaddled in puff pastry!
                          *Pamper* yourself--and forget about the calories!

                          *More food-for-thought: Baby Quiche! And you thought they were talking about the plain old, run-of-the-mill egg and cheese dish over at Off Course! Hah! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

                            That bug was passed around the office for a bit until Carl had time to look into it and fix it. So with the next release (Which I believe will be friday) the bug should be fixed...

                            • I just had the most delicious French "bebe en croute" the other day. The puff pastry was wrapped around the rump in the most cunning way - it looked just like a diaper!

                              At another table, they were having whole roast suckling bebe, with the apple in its mouth carved to look like a pacifer. Wow, now that's fancy cooking!

                                Suckling Bebe.... Mmmmmmmm.

                                I really just have obsessive compulsive dissorder. If I am not surrounded by witty people (Who like to cook babies) then I start to get itchy and really fidgety. So think of it as a regular medication.

                                • This may be my limit... I draw the line at weanlings, or at least sucklings who are creep feeding.

                                  Although I'm sure that milk-fed flesh is mighty tasty. Much like an M&M, it melts in your mouth (as the enzymes in your saliva go to work on it!), and not in your hand (which is a cold, frigid, DQ hand anyway!).

                                    Erin - This may be my new all-time favorite BB line! Framable, it is.. Thanks!

                                    Next thing we know, you, an administrator, will be having opinions! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] Gasp! Oh wait, that's another thread...



                                    • Whew! I finally got through this thread, with only small amounts of coffee behind blown onto my monitor. Nothing that a baby wipe won't clean up, anyway.

                                      I must admit though, I am starving! Lucky for me it's lunch time. Gonna go out and get me some Skish-ka-baby. Nothing like a tender baby on a stick - it keeps the mess off my white gloves.
